The side issue, that is never talked about, and scarcely even realized by 99% of those engaged in that line of work, or any other for that matter - and this is the main focus of this piece and all others in this here little blog - is that during these events, The Great Ones, and the not-so-great ones even, the amount of TALK increases to a level absolutely unseen at other times, and in most other lines of work. There is just more to TALK about, more details to spin, twist and turn, comment, re-share, re-tweet, like, love, dislike, hate, and yada yada yada, in the heads of more people, and everyone wants to share in that activity, because, frankly, it makes their little gray BRAINS tingle, almost orgasmically. The ENERGY of these great events moves around the planet, from head to head to head, across the airwaves, and in just a few short minutes, damn near everyone on the planet who CAN be aware, IS NOW aware of what has happened, and they all have become suitably GLUED to their "news sources of choice", like any addict to his pusher. And more importantly, they discover thoughts, beliefs, theories, speculations, comments, criticisms and all sorts of other noises bouncing around in their brains about the EVENT in question. JUST LIKE THEY ARE MADE TO DO.
The human species, when thought of as a gigantic BRAIN surrounded by several billions of appendages - your entire body is one, his is one, hers is one, mine is one - is pulsating, undulating, and shining brilliantly on this planet (which, by the way, can only be fully appreciated off-world with elevated senses) like some monstrous, semi-intelligent organism of trillions and trillions of interconnected neural structures (just as YOUR brain in your head is, though on a comparatively nano-scale), sucking and fucking, eating and shitting, and talking a BIG BLUE STREAK about tens of millions of things, every second of every day (what a cacophony!) And you might think, this is for the primary purpose of "smartening up" the Being being discussed, and perhaps that is true, but perhaps not. That is, in all those who continually "take a side" - having a dog in the fight as it were - it is NOT so true, but in all those who can STAND ASIDE, and watch... observe... LOOK... LISTEN... always trying to comprehend and understand what is going on... IN LIFE ITSELF... and in the minds of the people who continually take sides...It Does.... and does that includes YOU?
